Hello, I'm currently testing out the trial of the latest version of DriveShell. I followed the guide within this forum.[url=http://forum.driveshell.com/posts/t3474-Android-Auto][/url] and now have Android Auto running on my carPC which I use 100% for the Waze app. Is there a way to get DriveShell to launch and embed this app somehow? I can get it launched but embedding doesn't seem possible.

Let me know if more info is needed.

thanks

Hi Mike!

Try adding the application through Settings->Apps->Application Manager as an External Application. I'm not sure how that will work with Android Auto, i haven't tested it myself.

Let me know if that works.

Hi Lasse, I did try to do that via external app. It launches the app fine, but just winds up behind the main interface with a window called Android Auto - Desktop Head Unit. I can alt-tab between the two but of course is not ideal. Anything else I can try?

Okay, well it should work with the use of external app at least. The way it works is by hosting another application inside Driveshell. It's pretty complex and a few things can screw it up.

What file are you telling it to launch? Does it load properly FROM Driveshell, but just not imbedded?
